Cha Chaan Teng
Chi and her lovely family come from Hong Kong. Cha Chaan Teng (Hong Kong-style Tea Rooms) are our heritage, you can find them in every districts in Hong Kong. As there is not so many Cha Chaan Teng in the UK, the Whittington’s team aims to bring this valuable food culture here, in the beautiful River Thames.
On every Friday, we would run a Cha Chaan Teng on our Tea Barge to serve classic Hong Kong meals. Our “Friday-only" menu provides Hong Kong-style milk tea, lemon tea, pineapple bun, satay beef with noodles, preserved vegetable and pork with rice noodles, Hong Kong-style French toast, club sandwich, etc.
Due to the unique history of Hong Kong, you may find that Hong Kong cuisines are a kind of Fusion cuisine which naturally combines elements of different culinary traditions from eastern and western countries. So, welcome all to come and try something new!
